RAWMEC - Recycling and waste management exhibition and conference.

About Me

RAWMEC is Lebanon's largest recycling and waste management exhibition and conference. It is part of a bigger platform called Lebanon Sustainability Week, which will focus on solid waste, industrial waste and alternative energy. With participation from various stakeholders including decision-makers, industry experts, innovators, private sector, investors and academia, RAWMEC will provide impetus to sustainability initiatives in Lebanon and other regional countries. Lebanon Sustainability Week will be a venue for knowledge-sharing, brainstorming, solutions delivery, technology transfer, peer networking and capacity building in the solid waste management, industrial waste management, industrial wastewater treatment and renewable energy sectors. It will provide a deep understanding of social, economic, environmental and technology trends driving the sustainability sector and will help in implementing technology-driven solutions to key environmental problems in Lebanon.

There is an urgent need to implement waste treatment strategies and adopt modern practices to treat and recycle industrial wastes and industrial wastewater in order to ensure a sustainable future for Lebanon.

According to conservative estimates, 70% of freshwater sources in Lebanon are exposed to untreated sewage from domestic and industrial sectors, which has led to dangerously high levels of microbial contamination of water bodies. The major polluting industries in Lebanon are food processing, cement, textiles, minerals, chemical products, metal fabrication and agriculture.

All of these topics will be discussed at Lebanon Sustainability Week 2020. Call ?+961 76785855? today or send email to info@lebanonexpo.com

In Lebanon, responsibility for waste management is assigned to municipalities. However, lack of funds, weak technical know-how, absence of sufficient sanitary landfills and a weak tax system have caused most municipalities to pay only minimal attention to this issue, leading to a widespread environmental problem that will only worsen with time. As a result more than 700 illegal and unsafe dump sites have been registered trough out the country and some of the largest ones are becoming a major problem for Lebanon both in environmental and economical terms.

Only few municipalities are equipped with sorting facilities and only few of them are still working. Authorities and communities consider solid waste management as one of the first priorities to be addressed and are thus constantly searching for funds and assistance. In rural areas, 61% of the municipalities surveyed rely on private companies to collect and dispose of urban solid waste, but it appears that 9% of the municipalities do not know or do not want to reveal the destination of their waste. 83% of the rural municipalities dispose of their waste in dumps without undertaking any other activities.

The rest, 9% has sorting and recycling units for urban solid waste but due to management constrains only a few of them is actually working. Around 40% of the municipalities dispose of the waste on public properties, 39% use private land, while 21% do not know or do not want to provide information relative to the characteristics of the dumpsite.

Waste is dispersed due the absence of specialized waste management systems in the municipalities and appropriate market strategies. Waste and recyclables are collected and disposed of in the following ways:

– They are placed in dumps

– They are recovered in a separation unit.

In the first case, informal collectors dig out the waste using rudimental instruments. The recyclables they recover in this way, however, are less valuable for a number of factors such as organic composition, impurity and stocking procedures.

In the second case, the waste is collected and transported to the separation unit that is managed by the municipality or by a private entity (always in collaboration with the municipality).

Whereas in the first case waste management is only a cost to the municipality, in the second case the municipality can profit from the sale of recyclable material. Nevertheless the absence of proper planning and management largely reduces the rentability of recycling for municipalities. This weak management leads to a high demand by recyclers for metal, car batteries, plastic and paper which are nonetheless low in availability.

All theses facts and more, will be discussed at the WASTE MANAGEMENT EXHIBITION AND CONFERENCE 2019, which will be from April 9 to 11 2019 at Hilton Beirut Metropolitan Palace.

The focus will be based on the current waste crisis in Lebanon, with the objective of establishing a professional solid waste management plan to overcome the current solid waste crisis.

The Exhibition is targeting the following profiles:

Waste Management Companies
Solid Waste Recycling Companies (Whether Municipal/organic waste, steel, plastic, papers…etc.)
Water Waste Recycling Companies
Medical Waste Recycling Companies
Suppliers Recycling services and products
Waste-to-Energy Technologies
Landfill Operators
Environmental Solutions & Monitoring Companies
Waste management consultants
Renewable energy companies
